    First time H1B stamping - Muscat, Oman

    Hello,

    I'm working as an engineer for a big manufacturing company as a direct employee, on an approved H-1B visa.

    I completed my MS in engineering on an F-1 visa.

    I'm ready to get my H-1B visa stamped for the first time. I was born and raised in Muscat, Oman (close to Dubai), where my parents reside and work now too. However, I hold an Indian passport.

    My F-1 was stamped in the US consulate there as well. I emailed the US consulate in Oman with all the details and requested them if i could apply there and they gave a positive reply.

    I seek your advise on this topic please.

    Regards,

    If the US Consulate in Oman is saying you can obtain the apply for the visa there, then what advice do you need?
    You don’t have to go for stamping unless you are actually intending to travel. If you are traveling and you’re visiting your family in Oman and you grew up there, and possibly still have a visa for Oman, then you really don’t have anything to worry about.

    Hello lisaanserson,

    thank you for your response.

    Yes, I intend to travel and visit family in Oman. I don't have a resident visa since I'm not dependent on parents anymore, nor work/ go to school there.

    I plan to take a print out of the email from the US Consulate that confirms me being able to apply for the visa there.

    Appreciate your advise!
